In this talk I seek to defend an epistemology that does not confine itself to the knowledge of propositions. In the first section I will try to motivate this move. The second section will discuss further how knowledge may be understood to reside in actions, and advance a notion of pragmatist coherence as the relationship between activities that we should seek. The third and final section will discuss the implications of the notion of coherence, including how it can serve as the core of new notions of truth and reality in the pragmatist tradition.

This talk is part of the CamPoS (Cambridge Philosophy of Science) seminar series.
